730 0

The premium Kadooment Band, Xhosa Barbados, is ready to bring us another edition of the Xhosa’s Design Challenge reality competition series. Launched during this year’s Crop Over festival, the show sees costume designers competing in a series of challenges and vying for the opportunity to design a section for the band.

The show is described on the band’s website as  “[t]he first of it’s kind in Barbados and the Caribbean” and one that gave “Barbadian designers and fashion enthusiasts…the opportunity to better understand and learn the craft of masquerade costume design, planning and construction.”

The winners of the inaugural season were Alyssa Goddard (the owner and creative force behind Cambria Costume and Design) and Caleb Straker, who worked as a team.

Applications are now open for the second edition.

Applicants must be eighteen years or older, reside in Barbados or be in the island at the time of filming and have a valid passport and US Visa. Submissions must be sent to by December 20th. They must include the applicant’s full name and contact information, a sketch of their ideal costume design and a fifteen to thirty second video about what inspired their design. For more details, check out the band’s post on their Facebook Page.

For direct links to all four episodes of the first edition, visit the band’s website.
